To point it out in simple words, Loki Episode 6 was a roller coaster ride. Tom Hiddleston's God of Mischief and his many many variants served drama, romance, betrayal, suspense and a Bollywood connection, can you ask more from a 40 min finale episode? We think not.
It was one of the most anticipated season finale of Marvel, especially after the questions and cliffhanger it leaves you with in Loki Episode 5. But turns out, a week's wait was worth it. More so, because it had a surprise for Bollywood fans.

The opening shot Loki Episode 6 introduces the audience to multiple happenings across the universe's timeline. We hear from multiple Marvel characters like Thor, Falcon, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Star-Lord, Captain America, Captain Marvel, and Vision to name a few. The sequence also has spoken by real-life personalities like Neil Armstrong, Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai and Nelson Mandela too.
The scene progresses with heavy bass beats if you listen closely, you'll hear the Bollywood song “Swag Saha Nahi Jaye” from Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi (2018) starring Sonakshi Sinha. While it seemed like a mistake initially, it was confirmed in the end credits where the makers mention the Bollywood song.
Penned by Mudassar Aziz, “Swag Saha Nahi Jaye” is sung by Sohail Sen, Shadab Faridi, Neha Bhasin.
Bollywood fans were naturally excited to hear the song in the final episode of Loki Season 1. Here's how they shared excitement on Twitter:
